Product Overview

The Cisco® ONS 15454 Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) provides a solid foundation for building service provider or enterprise optical transport networks that deliver voice, video, storage, and data services. The Cisco ONS 15454 SONET MSPP offers the following capabilities:

· Scalable platform supporting networks from OC-3 (155 Mbps) to OC-192 (10 Gbps) plus 32-channel DWDM capabilities

· Comprehensive offering of multiservice interfaces supporting TDM, Ethernet, storage and data applications needs

· Robust design to support carrier-class deployments

· SDH and Intelligent DWDM configuration options

· Comprehensive, multilayer management capabilities enabled through the Cisco Transport Controller craft management system, Transaction Language one (TL-1) interface, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and Cisco Transport Manager element management system with northbound interfaces to network management and operational support systems.

Release 5.0 Features

New hardware and software features provided by the Cisco ONS 15454 SONET MSPP Release 5.0 are outlined in Table 1 and Table 2.

Table 1. Cisco ONS 15454 SONET MSPP Release 5.0 Hardware Features

Feature

Description

48-Port DS3/EC-1 Interface card

This new high-density card improves the Cisco ONS 15454 shelf utilization by enabling a single chassis to scale up to 192 DS-3 interfaces, or by freeing up shelf slots for other revenue generating services improving system density and flexibility.

12-Port DS-3 Transmultiplexer card with portless interface mode

Provides support for transmuxing channelized DS-3 signals to VT-mapped STS signals. Provisionable DS-3 termination capabilities support ported-interfaces for traditional chassis terminated DS-3 hand-offs, or portless-interfaces for STS transported DS-3 terminations delivering increased networking flexibility.

8-Port 10/100 Mbps Carrier-Ethernet (CE) card

Point-to-point transport of Ethernet and Fast Ethernet services over SONET for simplified provisioning and SLA management. Leverages standards-based general framing procedure (GFP) encapsulation for multivendor interoperability, low-order (LO) and high-order (HO) virtual concatenation (VCAT) with link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS) or contiguous concatenation (CCAT) for service scalability with circuit resiliency.

Timing, Communications, and Control-version Two Plus card (TCC2P) with secure operating mode

Enables the 2 management LAN ports to be provisioned either with independent IP/MAC addresses for additional network security/segregation or with a single IP/MAC for simplicity. Fully interoperable with the TCC2 card and in all TCC2 deployed systems.

Table 2. Cisco ONS 15454 SONET MSPP Release 5.0 Software Features

Feature

Description

Protection upgrades from unidirectional-path switched ring (UPSR) to bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR)

Provides additional networking flexibility to match changing traffic patterns by allowing in‑service ring protection migrations.

Dual ring interconnect (DRI) for BLSR

Additional level of circuit resiliency when a network segment traverses more than 1 ring.

SL-Series Fibre-Channel over SONET card enhancements for sub-rate circuit and extended distance support

Sub-rate Fibre Channel circuits using either contiguous concatenation or high-order (STS-1-Nv or STS-3c-Nv) virtual concatenation (VCAT). Distance extension up to 1150/2300 km (at 1Gbps/2 Gbps line rates) using buffer-to-buffer flow control credit management.

Japan automatic protection switching (J‑APS) and 64 kHz + 8 kHz building integrated timing supply (BITS) support

Enhances system flexibility to support global deployments.

Consolidation of the Cisco ONS 15454 MSPP and MSTP (Release 4.7) functionality

Single Cisco ONS 15454 software load to support MSPP and Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) applications for simplified operations and additional platform flexibility.

More detailed information can be found in the release notes for the Cisco ONS 15454 SONET MSPP available at: http://cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/optical/ps2006/prod_release_notes_list.html

Cisco ONS 15454 SONET Software Release 5.0 features are incremental additions to the Cisco ONS 15454 SONET MSPP. Previously supported Cisco ONS 15454 SONET MSPP hardware and software features will continue to be supported unless specified in the release notes, user documentation, or previously announced end-of-sale product bulletins.

cisco ios software release information

The Cisco ONS 15454 ML Series cards, which use Cisco IOS® Software to deliver Layer 2 and Layer 3 functions, are provisioned through the Cisco IOS Software command-line interface. Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(18)SO is integrated into Cisco ONS 15454 Software Release 5.0, enabling a single, unified software image for installation and operation. The Cisco IOS Software image is not upgradable independently from Cisco ONS 15454 SONET MSPP Software.

For details about the capabilities offered by the Cisco IOS Software release on the Cisco ONS 15454 ML Series cards, review the Cisco ONS 15454 Software Release 5.0 user documentation, available at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/optical/ps2006/products_installation_and_configuration_guides_list.html

upgrade paths

Direct software upgrades to Cisco ONS 15454 SONET Release 5.0 are supported from Cisco ONS 15454 SONET Release 4.0, 4.1, 4.5, 4.6, and 4.7 if the system is presently operating with the Cisco ONS 15454 Timing, Communications, and Control Version 2 (TCC2 or TCC2P) card. For details on the upgrade procedures, please review the appropriate upgrade guide found at the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/optical/ps2006/prod_installation_guides_list.html

1. Cross-connect card dependent.

2. EC-1 is supported by the 48-Port DS-3/EC-1 interface card but not supported in Cisco ONS 15454 SONET Software Release 5.0. Support for EC-1 is planned for a future Cisco ONS 15454 SONET MSPP software release.

3. TCC2P required for timing support.

4. Not required in DWDM-only node.

5. CE-Series card will be supported with future R5.0.x software maintenance release.

Before inserting a new node into an operating network, all existing Cisco ONS 15454 nodes connected with active optical section-data-communication-channel (SDCC) interfaces should be upgraded to a consistent level of system software to ensure proper operation.
